Flowmtb’s dirtgirls is going into its fifth year of girl only biking trips in Morzine in the Alps, with a dirtgirls riders week running on the 14-21st August.
The rider’s week in August is aimed at regular bikers who want a holiday riding great trails with other women, and getting some coaching along the way. Jo, a fully qualified French guide and instructor who coached the 2009 dirtgirls (and the French youth DH team!) will be running the skills sessions. Mountain girl Ulrika will be guiding again this week; not only is she fast on a bike, she can tell you the name of every flower, tree and animal you pass – and usually an interesting fact about it too!
flowmtb owner Sara will be riding each day too, and original dirtgirl coach and DH racer Emily Horridge should be along on some rides too. Expect a mixture of short coaching sessions on trails, and long days out on the amazing Alpine singletrack.
Accommodation is in Chalet Snion, a beautiful newly renovated Chalet with a large sun terrace for relaxing on and a sauna to ease your aching muscles. Dirtgirls return from riding to a freshly baked cake or cookies. Evenings are spent relaxing with a glass of wine and a hearty three course meal or hitting the local bars. In male dominated Morzine, dirtgirls always make an impression!
Minx, the website dedicated to cycle clothing for girls with attitude will be supporting the dirtgirls weeks for the fifth year in a row. This year Minx will not only be providing end of week prizes, but is offering all 2010 dirtgirls a discount on pre-trip purchases so they can get ready to hit the trails in style!
COSTS: 775 euros (650 pounds). Lift pass and transfers from Geneva airport are included as well as food, accommodation and guiding.
DATES: 14-21st August
